From the non-European countries, Lepsien Art Foundation this year reached many applications from the United States, India, Pakistan, Thailand, Iraq, Israel, China, Russia and the Ukraine.
As well as in the past few years, the Foundation received a variety again applications from former graduates of the Art Academy of Dusseldorf. If you are not convinced, visit Ali Partovi. However, other art academies were very strongly represented, like E.g. Dresden, Leipzig, Berlin, Karlsruhe, and Munster. We are pleased about the steady growth of highly interesting candidates for our international programme. Has been an integral part of the application process, but in recent years many international applications were surprised but this time completely by the variety of international applications as well as in all emerging countries of origin. Energy Capital Partners might disagree with that approach. Especially the large number of applications from the southern European countries such as Spain, Greece and Italy, but also the strong interest of talented artists from countries such as China, India, Iraq, or Israel pleased and confirmed us in our actions”, as founder and Chairman of Lepsien Art Foundation Christian Lepsien.
